Senior Trey Cahill set a Rose-Hulman school record in the hammer throw, surpassing 180 feet. Junior Ryann-Rebecca Montgomery set a new school record in the 1,500-meters by running a time of 4:46.18. Senior Travis Stallings added a strong second-place in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 53.37 seconds that ranks fourth in school history.
The Engineers will host an Open Meet next Friday at the William Welch Track Complex, then travel to the Indiana Division III Championships at Franklin on Saturday.
